Up until this point in the film, Welles and his cinematographer Gregg Toland utilize many innovative lighting techniques they brought over from the theater. For example, many times the lights were manually dimmed up and down within a scene just like on a stage. Also Welles often had characters speak while cloaked completely in silhouette to detach them from the action of a scene. The lighting within this particular scene however is very different. Unlike the dramatic stage lighting that occurs throughout the film, the moment when Kane destroys the bedroom is very broadly lit.
It has undergone somewhat of a semantic change from its Greek etymology meaning “imitating all”, and presents a cohesive fusion of nursery rhyme and story-telling, harnessing distinctive features such as “commedia dell’arte figures… topical and often satirical references, [an] elaborate stage set… all in plots that display a total disregard of logic”. (Kaplan p. 266 – 276). Max Beerbohm notes in his description of the art that pantomime is the only form of drama uniquely English. Similarly to Cabaret Theatre, the interaction between the audience and the cast is integral to the form of the drama (), and would inevitably appeal to a juvenile audience. Pantomime has interwoven many theatrical elements into its dialogue throughout its existence, and by adapting to the perpetual world of theatre forms, it has reigned supreme ().
The people at the masquerade wore costumes and masked themselves while those in the theatre did not. They walked slowly and languished about while the rhythm in the theatre came alive through all of the micro movements of the audience in the theatre. True art is for humanity as a whole and not for the select few. When power tries to use art, it either only manages to imitate it, through the use of costumes at the masquerade, or the art it manages to get becomes corrupted, as Diego’s painting became corrupted and destroyed down to a syphilis
1. Shakespeare opens the play by showing the witches for several different reasons. One of these reasons includes the fact to set up the scene by creating a mood/tone. The mood/tone that is created is dark, ominous, and enigmatic as witches are known to be evil and wicked. This mood/tone was also created because Macbeth is known to be a tragedy play.
I think the song incorporates so many complex musical elements, and creates a sense of drama and theatre, unique solely to it. Not only do I think the creature would relate to the theatrical components of the song, I think he would also relate to the protagonist’s tortured sensibilities. Another thing that would make this song great for the creature’s education is the fact that its meaning was never clearly defined by Freddie Mercury or any of the other members of Queen, yet the song means so much to so many, and I think that could show the creature the value of interpretation and
I was impressed of how you observed the different shadings on the house and I have to check it out myself, too and I have to agree with you. On the other hand, I believe this horror film takes advantage more on its certain elements of cinematic language . For example, the lighting strategy and dark shadows inside the Bates Motel created an eerie character which resulted this film to be linked into horror
It is a marvelous fairy tale of a hideous ogre finding true love despite of his physical appearance. When we arrived at the Pam Ware Performing Arts Center of Gainesville High School we were in awe with the eloquent building brick design. As we went in, we noticed the proscenium stage in front of us in addition to the orchestra pit. The orchestra pit location rested just in front and below the stage. Since our seats were just a few rows from the center of the stage, my son and I had a delightful view of the orchestra.
Dracula a PUSH Physical Theatre production written by Danny Hoskins. A retelling of the Bram Stoker 's horror novel, Dracula. A physical storytelling using artistic gravity acrobatics. Something I have never seen before makes you question what are some different types of theatre. It keeps you grounded in every word, movement, and song.
The idea of a circus is seen in art and media is seen as dark and scary, while Mike Nichols paints it with a bit of darkness but also adds pops of color to convey lightness. Art is important to life, because it allows people to stimulate their imagination, and it allows people to express their
The choreographies presented at the Cornish Dance Theater were very distinct from each other, though choreographers from both pieces put much effort on communicating devices to best deliver their intended-visions to the audiences. In MIXeD mEdia, the stage was decorated into a narrowed, light-colored setting in addition to the ballet performance, making the overall impression of the performance to be somewhat joyful and relaxing. Similarly, in Cannot Be Undone, the choreographer not only had music altering between strong-beats-fast-pace and sentimental-style-slower-pace, but also utilized varied lighting design in addition to props for creating sensational impacts. Although the two choreographers structured the performance with very different way, I believe that their intentions and motivations were alike after viewing and sharing
